speedzzter 5pts Look at it this way: It didn't occur to him either. Autographs are overrated. I remember at the 2001 Ford Racing Centennial at The Henry Ford & Greenfield Village, the 2003 Ford Motor Company Centennial at the Ford WHO (a/k/a the Glass House)and the 2004 40th Anniversary Mustang Celebration in Nashville that lots of folks stood for hours in huge lines for autographs of various Ford legends and luminaries. Of course all of that time wasted standing in line was time that COULDN'T be spent taking in and photographing the once-in-a-lifetime gatherings of historic muscle and race cars and some of the people who made them famous. All of that wasted opportunity for a handful of stupid autographs.On the other hand, I was photographing the entry parade of Ford GTs at the 2003 Centennial next to then-current MM&FF editor Jim Campisano and I didn't stop to ask him for an autograph. And I studied Henry Ford's 999 racer standing next to Tommy Kendall at the 2001 Ford Racing Centennial and I didn't turn the conversation into an autograph plea. Were those mistakes? Of course not. The event was more important than the "proof" we'd been in the same place at the same time.
